"Making Sense: Art and the Gospel" lecture and reception at Billy Graham Center Museum, Wheaton College

June 17, 2014 from 6:30pm to 9pm
What do the arts have to do with evangelism?What role can the arts play in Christian theology, in the life of the church, in our mission to the world? Can the Incarnation of Christ open up a distinctive way of viewing what art is and what it does? How might our engagement with the arts help us to live out an embodied faith more integrated with every aspect of what it means to be human? In the first collaboration of its kind between these two organizations, Ravi Zacharias International…See More

Artist / Personal Statement
Animal emblems have a long history in art, offering a concise, yet oblique language by which to imagine and critique the relationships we share as individuals in community. For nearly twenty years, Richmond-based artist, craftsman and writer Mark Sprinkle has sought to translate elements of this rich, largely rural tradition of animal allegory for his contemporary urban setting, calling to mind questions of identity and justice especially as they are refracted through the cultural lenses of race and faith. Meanwhile, Mark’s landscape images (whether the setting is the Italian country-side, the flat coastal plain of Texas, the American West, or the rolling terrain and spare rural architecture of the Virginia/North Carolina tobacco belt) seek to evoke that mutually-defining interaction of the land and those who have lived in it, while alluding to the romance often attributed to the locales themselves as part of the common longing for a “simple” and more peaceful past. In every case, though, Mark treats his paintings as sites of engagement and negotiation between his own ideas and aesthetics, those of artists and writers in the past, and those of real, specific viewers in the complex present.
Accomplishments / CV
Born and raised in Texas, Mark graduated from Georgetown University with majors in both Painting and American Studies. He holds Masters and Ph.D. degrees in American Studies from the College of William and Mary, where he focused on the social history and contemporary ideologies of art, especially in the domestic setting. Since then, Mark has been a full-time artist and frame-maker, using traditional techniques in developing and producing frames for his paintings. His work can be found in public and private collections across the US, in Great Britain, France and China.

A Virginian since 1991, Mark lives and works in Richmond with his wife, Beth, and their three sons, Callaway, McKinley, and Calder.
